Crusader Kings II “Piracy” Trailer Released!

NEW YORK - February 17, 2012 – Have you been counting? The Seventh Deadly Sin is, naturally, Piracy! The final live action trailer for grand strategy game Crusader Kings II is an accurate re-enactment of an internal piracy discussion at Paradox. If Paradox had operated in the middle ages, anyway (though CEO Fred Wester does bellow "Summon my admiral!" even today).

Our dramatic finale sees our King fighting the Swiss pirate Downlow Ding of Gaems. Has our King met his match at last?

Fans have been waiting seven years for Crusader Kings II, a wait which is finally over. Crusader Kings II sees players taking control not of a nation, but a ruling family, where personal problems can prove even deadlier than the political. The game released this week and is available via all major digital distribution platforms and selected retail at a suggested retail price of $ 39.99.
